So anyway… the other day I got this thumb-solicitation for a site. Normally when I get these I just oblige: I visit, and thumb them down.
But this one was different.
It made me stop and think.
I shan’t embarrass the sender by naming them, but the message was:
For the up coming Xmas!
check this blog out: maclegacy.blogspot.com
Help them out. Do something good for Xmas.
The basic story here is: there’s this family, they have a kinda dated PC system, I mean it’s only a 1.7Ghz processor, it’s definitely last year’s tech.
They would like to upgrade to a MacBook Pro, presumably as they have seen the ads, and wish to be Different&atrade;. This, however, will cost them $2,499…
Which is pretty big money if you are ‘poor’.
So far they have made $18.50, only $2480.50 to go. But in today’s caring society, that’s nothing when people get together to help those in need! I mean look at Novemnber the 5th, Ron Paul (PBUH) day, they raised almost $4 million, just to pay for an advertising campaign!
Who wouldn’t want to help others at Xmas?
Oh wait, I almost forgot to review this site. Silly me.

$2499 = 625 days of sex work for her, at the full $4 price.
The amount given for St. Ron Paul, never mind the mainstream candidates?
A lot more days, but then, you know, it’s true: the choice between tweedle-dee and tweedle-dumber, and tweedle-crackhead… that’s far more important than 10 years olds selling themselves for sex on the street. That’s Civilisation.
